Forum: general Subject: The Loser

I didn't know which one of the many forums to post on, so I picked this one.

I started going to school at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in the fall of '94. At that time, one of the most popular sites on the rising internet was "The Loser". This was a sortof blog written by someone who lived in Mustang Village, an apartment complex adjacent to campus. The author wrote about the activites of the guy that lived in the apartment above him, who had one friend, and stayed up late at night pacing the floor and making weird noises.

Soon after I got hip to this, the "Loser" moved out of this apartment. The aftermath is that we don't know if he moved out because of the site, or even if he knew about it. There has also been discussion about which one of these guys is the real loser.

Someone, somewhere must have these priceless postings collected. Privacy issues aside, I think they deserve preservation as a part of internet history. How can we find them? Search engines have been no help.
